Crispy fried egg on a plate
The Chef-Approved Strategy For Perfect Fried Eggs
On YouTube's Food Wishes, Chef John posted a video that reveals a hack to achieve the perfect fried egg: breaking the membrane of the egg whites with a spatula.
This allows the egg whites to spread, which allows for even cooking. The trick also positions the yolk right in the center of the whites, making for a more visually pleasing egg.
Chef John goes on to say that
the fried egg is done when the edges and bottom are crispy. He cooks the egg sunny side up,
but you can use this hack for
any kind of fried egg.
